Parenting + Chronic Disease = Adventure

Many of you may not know that I have type I diabetes. I was diagnosed at age 24 (almost five years ago) after a year and a half of serious symptoms. I was on death's door when I was wheeled into an Emergency Room, was diagnosed, and began to merge into my new life, one with this disease.

I am not ashamed of my diabetes. It has shaped who I am and who I will become. Because of my diagnosis, we decided to adopt, and obviously, we now have two beautiful baby girls.

On top of being a full time mom and part-time college English teacher, I'm also a freelance writer. I have so many passions---and I can't stop talking about them!

If you'd like to learn more, check out my latest article on the Diabetes Health website. I appreciate your readership. You can leave a comment on the article without an account. The articles apply to everyone, not just people with diabetes. You can learn how to live healthier and raise a healthy, happy family. Education is empowering!
Even though this blog is mostly about my family and our transracial, adoptive journey, I believe in whole health (body, mind, and spirit), and I'll be sure to let you know when I have a new publication on a topic that pertains to whole health and family life.
Happy Reading!
